Dreams Bugs šŸœ

With such a huge suite of creative tools, you may encounter occasional bugs in Dreams. Itā€™s really helpful for us to hear about them! If you discover an issue in Dreams, please check to see if anyone else has reported the issue before and if someone has, comment on it with your experiences. If not, post a new bug report here!

Hereā€™s some top tips to help us track down your bug as quickly as possible:

ā€¢ Give us a brief, clear summary of the bug. If necessary let us know what you think should be happening that isnā€™t.
ā€¢ Let us know the exact steps we need to follow to recreate your bug. For example -
ā€œLoad game > go to create mode > search for banana > stamp ā€œsuper cool bananaā€ > the banana didnā€™t load!"
ā€¢ If possible it really helps if you can include a screenshot or video of the problem.
ā€¢ Let us know the release version of the game ā€“ you can find this by having the Dreams icon highlighted on the Playstation homescreen, pressing ā€œoptionsā€ and then ā€œinformationā€. The bit we want is the Version number!

  1. VR wobble and drift

    I've been trying to use the VR headset, but in all modes the screen 'wobbles' in and out a small distance. I'd assume tracking was an issue but the PS4 system menu is rock solid.
    Also, the screen seems to wander off to the left or right after a short period of time. I cannot recenter as holding option button just recenters the imps.

  2. All my "thumbs up" gone!

    My dream was in the top 10 of a recent community jam. It had gained a good number of "thumbs up" from the community. Now they have all vanished, and I only have 3 thumbs up.

    Hi Godslayer,

    We’ve looked at your stage (v.1.3.4) and we’ve seen that there are no keyframes or animations listed in ‘attack animation 3’.
    Are you still experiencing this issue or are we looking at the wrong version of this stage?

    Many thanks,
    PeteS

  4. Voice recordings lost when interrupted with photo mode

    Just noticed in my opening cutscene to this: https://indreams.me/scene/dLRcZbtzmzG

    That when I went into photo mode during the opening voice-recorded narration, when I finished the photo and un-paused, the voice stopped and the rest of the cutscene is without vocals.

    As an aside, I've found it's very difficult to use the voice recorded clips - the audio never lines up with the waveforms that show on the clips in timelines. Generally the clip is finished at about the 2/3 point of the actual clip length. The only way to sync up the scenes is through brute force trial and error!

  5. Ps4 keyboard arrows don't work anymore

    These arrows are used to work and they were a pretty good use in order to change cursor's position easily!

    Right now,if you want to correct or chance something in a big text of yours(its the same in every appearance of the Ps4 keyboard) you have to press L1 or R1 forever in order to locate it.

  7. Dreams unable to load, since early access, and is still happening in final release..

    So i have had this bug since early access. Basically im unable to load most dreams 90 percent of the time. For example:

    i will load Dreams from my playstation. Then go to browse in dreamaverse. Select a game and hit 'play'. Then the loading thing will just spin forever and never load the dream.

    OR, alternatively when it DOES load a game/dream, it will often not get past the next loading screen or level, and just sit there with the spinning swirl and i cant even hit 'start' to exit out. Instead i have to hold my PS buttonā€¦

  8. Naming conventions for logic disappeared

    Hi, I'm not sure how to replicate this bug as it seemed a one time thing (so far, fingers crossed), but when I booted up my level all the naming conventions for my logic were gone. This includes Mm logic I used (the ancient temple score counter). Replacing it seems to work. All the names I used previously I can't select anymore in the quick access menu in the logic where you scroll through the names you gave your logic before. So all my receivers, transmitters etc. have been reset causing all sorts of mayhem when going to play mode.ā€¦

    Hi there Joep,

    Sorry to hear you encountered this problem and lost work you created due to it :(

    Can i ask if the message you got was ‘Pre-load failed’?

    Has it happened to you again since you posted this message?

    Thanks,
    PeteS

  9. "Following" shouldn't include dreamers completing Imp Quests.

    I honestly don't care that someone i follow has completed xxx imp quest, especially since it doesn't even specify what that required.

    All it does is spam my Notifications and make important things get lost, like creators updating or publishing new levels. I have to scroll for like 2 minutes just to see all notifications of the past 24h and 90% are imp quests. (and i only follow 8 people!)

  10. Animations permanently destroyed without ability to undo

    Take a puppet and give it some nice animations
    Press triangle on the object just above the hips

    You are now in the ā€œrepositionā€ connectors mode.

    After doing this all animations to the parts above the hips hips in the animation hierarchy are gone.
    Pressing undo does nothing.

    This is on a puppet

  11. Invisible group within an unemitted object cannot be edited

    I have a house
    Inside the house group is another group of furniture.
    The furniture only becomes visible if the house is upside down, otherwise it is destroyed.

    When the house emits upside down, furniture appears like itā€™s supposed to.

    However now itā€™s impossible to edit the furniture group.
    Even with ā€œpreview visibilityā€ turned on I still can not see the group of furniture

    The only way I can see it is if I make sure a wire connected to the group is visible, but even then the entire group is almost 99% transparent and cannot be selected.

    Even deletingā€¦

  12. Adding "Art's Dream" prizes to my scene made it unable release as playable

    After completing the jaw dropping Mm Dream, 'Art's Dream' I was excited to use some of the prize bubbles I gathered in my playthrough in my own scenes.

    I have a couple scenes that I have worked on during the early access period and have been uploading as private, playable and public - testing each publishing way to become more comfortable and understand the different release capabilities.

    It wasn't until I added some of the new Mm "Art's Dream" assets to my scene that I ran into some issues. My scenes became unable to upload, even as public or private.

    Hi TAPgiles,

    There were a number of fixes on the latest patch, though I’m not aware of a specific fix regarding Emitters or Timelines.

    Good to know that it’s no longer occurring for you though.

    If you do experience this again, please feel free to create a new ticket for it.

    Thanks for your continued efforts on Dreams!

  14. Boil effect seems to be tied to other effects.

    All effects than affect the opacity of the fleck (boil, flow, and evaporate) affect the speed of the boil. It's as if the highest value is used for the boil effect.

    So then if you have flow on 50% and boil is less than 50%, that boil setting does nothing, and visually the boil is at 50%.

  15. View in random position when changing to play mode

    Most often happens the first time play mode is used for a new creation, but happens at other times also. Doesn't happen every time, but it's fairly often until it settles down and then it doesn't happen again.

    Doesn't seem linked to camera bookmarks.

    Examples:

  16. Homespace constantly refreshes after puppet death

    After placing the puppet D-BUG from Artā€™s Dream in my homespace and controlling it, I left it sitting on a shallow water cookie from the welcome garden sculptures. Sometime shortly after, I deleted the water cookie with the puppet still on it. After that point, the homespace is in a constant state of refreshing, as if the character is dying over and over again. Pressing undo did not fix the issue, and it seems impossible to locate the puppet anymore to delete it from the world. After some time of frustration looking for a solution, I decided to try replicatingā€¦

  17. Reference frame, engine and gyroscope

    Hello. Why the reference frame doesn't work with the gyroscope and the engine. I wanted to make a moving object with animation, but if there is a motor or gyroscope, it does not work, or moves to the recording location.And if you immediately put a gyroscope or engine, it is not even recorded.

  18. Coat Mode tools apply to hidden objects when using ā€œhide everything elseā€

    Create three cubes, and group two of them.

    Scope into the group, and enable ā€œhide everything elseā€

    Enter Coat Mode and select the Hue tool.

    Enable the volume brush by clicking the button or holding dpad up

    Hold r2 while moving the brush around the place where the hidden cube would be.

    Scope out, and observe that the hidden cube was accidentally hue-shifted.

    This issue does not seem to occur when hiding objects with the Hide tool.

  20. The entire game world turns when I use VR in create mode

    When I use VR the game world shifts slightly every once and a while and it seems it can only be fixed by turning off my headset or closing the application. As you can imagine this is very upsetting considering this only happens in dreams. With dreams being one of my favorite games I truly hope this is fixed in the near future.
